Join our free online event on Thursday 10 June at 1-2pm or 6-7pm.
“Borrowing items, rather than buying new, saves money for our residents,” said Cllr Lisa Homan, Cabinet Member for Housing. “What’s more, the library of will act as a community hub for events, sharing and repairing.”

Hammersmith Library of Things is funded by Ingka Centres as part of the ongoing transformation of Kings Mall as they look forward to opening the first-ever IKEA city store at the Hammersmith centre. As a place open to all, the new Library of Things will help transform the shopping centre into an even more convenient community hub.
At the Library of Things, you can borrow items only used occasionally. These items could include gardening, DIY, sports and cooking equipment... the list goes on.
As well as saving money, reducing the new things you buy cuts your carbon footprint. It’s just one of the ways we helping residents rise to the challenge of the climate and ecological emergency.
